Cesar Gracie: GSP’s Style “Ultimate Stalling” more so than “Ultimate Fighting”

Famed MMA coach, Cesar Gracie speaks about one of his most promising students, Nick Diaz’ opponent Georges St-Pierre at the forthcoming UFC 137 event in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 29th, 2011, adding GSP’s style is more like “ultimate stalling” rather than “ultimate fighting”.

Gracie, speaking via fcfighter.com, said:

“The thing is it’s really not my business how he fights; he’s not on my team, so, I truly don’t care how he fights. Now if you’re asking me as a fan, yeah, that style is not what I like to watch. I like to watch guys that just go completely for it, take chances, and give crowds what they want, which is ‘Ultimate Fighting,’ not ‘ultimate stalling’ or anything like that.”

“I think he’s going to approach this fight somewhat like the BJ Penn fight. I think he’ll try to fight Nick the same way where he’ll tie up with him, try to keep him up against the cage, do a little dirty boxing and try to get him arm weary, maybe get some takedowns and see how that goes. He’ll probably be cautious from the top position but try to inflict damage depending on how it’s going.”
